Success and Job Joy for Liverpool
MIDDLE England Developments
has completed its refurbishment of Candia Tower in the Everton area
of North Liverpool.
The company bought both Candia Tower and the neighbouring Crete
Tower back in October from administrators for £1.8m in a Joint
Venture with SLC Property Investments Ltd, after a developer which
had previously proposed a scheme for the site had run out of money.
It immediately began work on refurbishing; both properties and has
completed the 64 apartment Candia Tower block within 3 months.
Middle England said that all 128 units at Candia and Crete Towers
were pre-sold to investors, and contracts have already been
exchanged on all units. Investments for each of the 3 bed room
apartments came from as far afield as China and Singapore.
Managing director of MED, Nigel Russell, said that over £2m has
already been spent on the upgrade, with a design team that includes
KDP Architects and SHP Structural Engineers.
The whole project of the 2 Towers, which are both 16 floors tall,
had directly and indirectly seen around 300 jobs created for the
likes of electricians, labourers and several other building
professions. Kevin Cole, Director of SLC Property Investments
Limited added:- "At a time when significant job cuts are being
made in industry as a result of the economic downturn, we are all
delighted that both Middle England Developments and SLC Property
Investment Ltd are able to create employment opportunities on this
project in North Liverpool."
Crete Tower and the remainder of the site should be complete by
early May 2012. All units in Candia Tower are now being let / up for
let with agents ranging from £525 to £575 per month, with an option
of a furniture pack for an additional £50 per month. There is 24
hour on site security, a residentís gym, underground parking and
spectacular views out across the city. The specification on this
development is very high with the City Centre only 5 minutes away.
